Business continuity and disaster recovery software

Reasons to choose the SafeKit software for business continuity and disaster recovery

Simple business continuity and disaster recovery software with SafeKit

There is no configuration difference when deploying a SafeKit cluster in the same computer room or in remote computer rooms.

How to implement a simple high availability solution between two remote computer rooms?

SafeKit mirror and farm modules can be put easily on servers in remote computer rooms. Without a special cluster configuration. SafeKit combines business continuity and disaster recovery. SafeKit manages split brain in case of network isolation without the need for a third server or a special quorum disk.

SafeKit vs hardware clustering

Partners, the success with SafeKit
